Grammer organizing internationally unique congress for spine research in the context of vehicle interiors for the third time
The Ergomechanics® Congress aims to provide a platform for sharing knowledge and improving the spine health of people in seated occupations. It sees itself as a public forum providing scope for sharing scientific and industrial findings with the aim of encouraging product designs and innovations for protecting people’s health.
The participants – scientists, industry experts, universities, development partners in the area of ergonomics, customers and the trade press – can expect numerous presentations on topics related to spine health in connection with practical driver seat applications and vehicle operation. The speakers include renowned ergonomics experts from international universities and from automotive and commercial vehicle companies such as John Deere, KION, Liebherr, BMW and Audi. The last Ergomechanics® congress attracted around 150 participants.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity of organizing the Ergomechanics® Congress again this year. The term Ergomechanics® symbolizes the intelligent link between ergonomics and biomechanics in the context of the operator system, i.e. the seat and seat environment in vehicles. User needs and perceived product quality are decisive factors in the development of seats,” says Dr. Susanne Frohriep, department Ergonomics at Grammer.
In addition to health aspects, vehicle interior comfort is growing in importance in the automotive industry. Accordingly, the Congress will be addressing subjects such as strain reduction through seats and armrests, freedom of movement, protection from vibration, multifunctional designs and other innovations – among other things in the context of self-driving vehicles.
